Jim arrives at the territorial prison and the lame Warden Primwick admits that he is as much a prisoner as his prisoners. He assures Jim that prisoner Ralph Kleed will die on the gallows within the hour. The agent notes that Kleed’s threats against the President have made him a greater danger than many, and that there has been a recent outbreak of prison escapes as part of some great conspiracy. Primwick insists that no one escapes from his prison and calls Kleed to his office to make a final statement. Kleed knows who Jim is and tells Primwick that he’s going to apologize and set him free.

James: Looks like an interesting game.
General Trask: The only game worth the candle.
James: Object is?
General Trask: To survive.
James: Looks like our friend out there just might make it.

General Trask: You don't know how happy I am to see that you're still alive.
James: Well, it's unanimous, sir. It seems that I've lost my shirt and somehow gotten my wrists wedged into these straps.
General Trask: Oh, that's unfortunate, Mr. Storch. Or should I say... West?
James: I see Mr. Kleed survived. I knew he was a mass murderer, but I'm disappointed. I didn't know he was a blabbermouth.
Professor Frimm: The operation, you will be happy to know, is quite a simple one. It consists basically of a hole drilled into your skull.
James: Oh, for a while I thought it might be complicated.
